فرزند متولد شده شما در آمریکا یک شهروند قانونی آمریکایی(citizen) محسوب میشود هرچند پدر و مادری غیر آمریکایی داشته باشد. اما تا زمانی که این فرزند 21 ساله نشده باشد هیچ سود و مزیتی در روند اقامت پدر و مادرش نخواهد داشت.

"Parents of a U.S. citizen child are eligible to apply for U.S.
permanent resident status when the child is 21 years old."
It is a common misconception that people can obtain immigration
benefits through their minor, US citizen children. If it were this
easy, most couples of childbearing age would have a green card within
nine months or so. The truth is that minor children cannot petition
for their parents’ green cards. Only US citizens, 21 years of age or
older, can petition for their parents
Parents can be petitioned by a U.S. citizen but only if the
petitioner (sponsor) is over 21 years of age. In other words, a
pregnant mother cannot deliver a baby in the U.S. and have the child
petition her even though the child would be a U.S. citizen
